Design wall Monday 6-23-13 Using it up


My scrap Squad project for the issue just out was posted on the Quilty Pleasures blog last Friday.QM_scrap-squadB If you haven’t seen it, please visit and sign up for the give-away that Quiltmaker is having.
In the article I wrote about all my difficulties with the points, and downsizing my size from a large lap to a baby quilt. I made an additional quilt, which is also small. The only “problem” is that I cut out enough “Recs” pieces to make the big quilt. I also had other left over components, mainly things that make the 4-pointed stars.So, long story short – I’m still working on using up the scraps.

#3b and #3C above

I’m determined to finish this one up using up all the left-overs. The setting triangles are all different as there isn’t enough of any one fabric to make them the same, but that’s what ”use it up” means. I found the sashing fabric under the stack of blues – I don’t know exactly what color it is, but 1998 – 15 years is long enough for it to be well seasoned.I hope you are having a happy quilty day!

I do like that "elderly" blue fabric Becky. I always enjoy seeing your scrap quilts. I agree, using odd fabrics are what scrap quilts are all about. Thanks for sharing.
